The NIKE AIR HUARACHE RUN iD brings one of the most popular retros in recent history to the customisation table – and with such strong options on offer, it’s one of our favourite iD models to date.
As you’d expect from the iD site, there’s plenty of good stuff on there, including some tasty reptilian leather options and the all-new fleece offerings. The Huarache itself has a unique design that means you can create something great very easily.
To begin with, we thought it might be fun to take the two original Huarache colourways from the early ’90s and add a few subtle twists just for the hell of it. Picking the original colour palette and dialing it down a bit to create something a little more subdued works really well. A guaranteed head turner to those who are familiar with the classic colour schemes.
Next up, we took a look at the two new fleece materials on offer and went for something a little smarter than your usual Huarache. Adding a University Red strap to the back adds just the right amount of contrast to the proceedings. As well as the fleece on offer, the snakeskin leathers are still available, so we thought we’d try out a slick Photo Blue side panel alongside some Hot Lava details – and it works well, in our humble opinions!
For our final two creations here, we’ve focused on the colour palette and produced some brighter options for the forthcoming autumn months. The first one takes advantage of the Voltage Green Poly Fleece that Nike have kindly provided – and then offset it with some Cool Grey mesh and a slick speckled midsole. Pink and red is the order of the day for our last shoe here – and even though it might be a little too spicy for some, we think this one would look great when paired with some dark denim. Who’s brave enough to give it a go?
